    Default Royal Women’s Melbourne Experience

    I had an elective c-section (bub was breech) 18 months ago, and I couldn’t fault them. Food was awful though, but that’s honestly the only negative thing I could say about it.

    Waiting time for appointments can be a bit long sometimes, I have heard it is better to go to the community clinics for checkups as the wait is less - I work in the CBD though so it was easier for me to go to the hospital, sometimes I did get stuck in the waiting room for ages which was a minor annoyance only really I guess.

    Thanks for your reply and congrats on your baby!
    Did you find you had much continuity in the Obstetricians that saw you?
    How long do you call a long wait?
    Thanks for your help!

    No continuity of obs unfortunately - honestly that didn’t bother me, I know it is important to some people but they were all great and know what they are doing so I was fine with that.

    A long wait was probably up to an hour - a good idea to organise your appointments in the morning if you can as I found they got worse/more behind as the day went on.

    All the best with your pregnancy!
